EMR, a world leading metal recycler, is supporting the Transport for London (TFL) scrappage scheme at six sites across the capital.

EMR Metal Recycling has Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATF) in Brentford, Canning Town, Mitcham, Neasden, Wandsworth and Willesden which are supporting the TFL scrappage scheme. Offering a complete service, EMR will collect the vehicle, produce the Certificate of Destruction and recycle the vehicle in a responsible manner.

The TFL scrappage scheme, launched by the Mayor of London, enables those on a low income and with a registered disability to scrap their polluting vehicle in exchange for £2000 which can be put towards another, greener vehicle, towards alternative modes of transport such as a push bike or public transport or simply save the money for a special occasion.

With the daily charge for entering London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in a non-compliant vehicle set at £12.50 (that’s a cost of over £4500 a year if you are entering daily) and with the expansion of the ULEZ beyond central London in October 2021, the is no better time to swap to a greener vehicle. With the help of initiatives such as the TFL scrappage scheme, the introduction of the ULEZ and greener transport options, pollution in London has been reduced by more than 40%.1

In a service which is being rolled out across the country our EMR Vehicle Recycling division offers a complete scrappage service. A dedicated website allows customers to get a quote for their vehicle in 3 clicks, all they need is their vehicle registration and postcode. There are no hidden charges and EMR promise to pay the price quoted. From here a customer can also book a collection by one of our friendly drivers, should they not be able to drop the vehicle off at their local site. All collections are carried out contact-free.

EMR will register the vehicles destruction with the DVLA, sharing the Certification of Destruction with the customer as the vehicle is accepted. As an ATF we have proven capability in carrying out the depollution process and storing vehicle components in compliance with strict environmental legislation.

Dan Gannon, EMR ELV Specialist said:

“This scheme offers a great chance to swap your vehicle for a greener alternative. At EMR we are passionate about environmental protection and we are proud to be able to support our customers in recycling their non-ULEZ emission compliant vehicles. Our ATF’s, not only in London but up and down the country, follow a strict set of procedures to ensure minimum environmental impact when recycling vehicles.”


Over the past decade EMR has invested over £350 million in new technologies and partnerships which enable us to recycle 95% of any ELV sold to us.
